Problem

    Problem: Domain Time system tray icon changes from the Domain Time logo to a flashing clock.

Details

    The Domain Time system tray icon changes from the Domain Time logo to a flashing clock if a problem is detected. This behavior is by design. The flashing clock is designed to alert you to a problem needing your attention.

Solution

    Hover your mouse over the flashing clock to see pop-up text telling you what the problem is. The pop-up text will either tell you that the service hasn't set its clock recently enough, or (if you have an evaluation version installed) that your evaluation period has expired.

    1. If the pop-up message says Evaluation period expired, you may either upgrade to the registered version or remove Domain Time from your system. Licenses for the registered version are available for purchase from our Secure Online Store.

    2. If the pop-up message says Clock not verified - time may be off, you should examine the log file to determine why. Right-click on the flashing clock and select Control Panel Applet from the pop-up menu.

      Note: The version 3.x and 4.x Thin Client does not have a control panel applet or a log. You may view its statistics or activity by selecting Client Statistics or Activity Monitor from the pop-up menu. If you cannot determine the problem with the Thin Client, you should replace it temporarily with the Full Client and examine the Full Client's log. After you have resolved the problem, you may switch back to the Thin Client. The Thin Client is designed for fully-automatic operation in reliable LAN environments where Domain Time II servers can be located by UDP broadcast.

      You can also use the DTProbe utility from the Thin Client workstation to determine which servers the client machine can see on the local network. Right-click on the flashing clock and select Domain Time II Probe from the pop-up menu.

      If DTProbe indicates no servers found, you must either install Full Client and specify the time server to use (recommended), or (advanced users only) adjust the broadcast addresses used by the Thin Client in the registry.
